Hi all,
Attached is a drawing of Mars I made on 30th August using the University of Leicester's 20 inch Planewave Dall-Kirkham.  Seeing was around AIII and there were a number of interesting features on the disk:
  • Solis Lacus present on the prec. side of the disk- lots of structure visible here.
  • It seemed as if there were bright clouds present in Argyre
  • Aurorae sinus also showed quite a bit of structure.
  • A vague streak present in the Ganges.
  • Mare Sirenum present on the following side of the disk.
Best wishes,
